Potato Dumplings

Another great dish from my husband's homeland. You can serve these alone with a gravy or in a soup. They are super easy to make and very delicious.

Potato Dumplings

  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 8 large seasoned croutons
Bring large pot of salted water to a rolling boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash.

In a medium bowl combine 2 cups mashed potatoes with nutmeg, flour and egg. Using about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of mixture each, shape into dumplings. Press crouton into center of each dumpling and seal dough around it. Drop dumplings into boiling water or if making a soup drop into simmering broth, cover and cook 20 minutes. Do not remove lid while cooking. Top with sliced green onions (for soup) or serve with mushroom gravy.
